3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

The rooms are very nice. Air conditioned with a tv. The resort is a nice setting. The beach is lovely at the right time of year. Massage treatments are also well priced. The pool is also quite good. I was not crazy on the food, but other options within walking distance. The staff try hard, you need to have some patience at times.

Stayed here for 1 night before we proceeded to our haouseboat, although i wish we could ve stayed longer! The resort is a fabulous property with cottages and a private beach. Nicely managed, good and healthy food. Nice and clean pool for a morning swim and bicyles for hire for a quick ride!
Their ayurvedic centre has good and knowlegble therapists with an ayurvedic doctor on call. Our abhyangam ayurvedic massage on the wooden table for an excellent experience!
Would definitely love to visit again for a longer stay!

The hotel is about 15 km from Alleppey town. Beachfront with good swimming pool. Rooms are individual cottages which keeps you independent from other guests. You are driven in a golf cart to your cottage and can ask to be picked up to take you to the restaurant.
Restaurant is only buffette with Indian food, but you can ask for sandwiches and some western kind food is local dishes are to hot for you...
Nice hotel to try...and enjoy Mararikulam beach for long walkings....

Hello Everyone,

I had a amazing 2N/3D stay in the beach villa of Abad Turtle Beach. Everything was smooth and wonderful from check in and check out. We came a hour early from our check in time and still got the room ready within few minutes. The property is on a exotic location, right infront of Marari Beach. The best part was the staff which always carry a pleasant smile on the face and doing all the possibilities to make the guest stay memorable. The pool is nice and clean.

My suggestion to them is on the variety of food available. The variety in menu card for veggies is very less and the one mentioned also doesn't taste that great.
During my stay i could have only aloo paranthas for 2 days bcoz that was the only thing that was tasting better than other dishes.
Please increase the variety of veg food and also make them taste better.

I would anyways love to visit again only and only bcoz of the courteous staff and pleasant location.

Room Tip: There are few villas available near by beach, try to book it for a wonderful beach view.

This is a great place to stay, with its beautiful beach, charming, spacious, clean bungalows, wonderful service and good value. Just two small cons: The only restaurant is good but rather pricy and does not serve alcohol. There is also little choice of activities (such as excursions and yoga).

Loved this hotel.....from the manicured gardens, good pool, great beach, lovely bay view room to the best food and very good staff. the enviroment they maintain and the weather we had was truely wonderful. One is assured of great food and service when it comes to this resort.
I was there for 4 days in june and the staff , even with the huge number of guests, was extremely hospitable throughout. The check -in was smooth and quick Guest services were prompt.
The morning breakfast buffet was sumptuous! I wish I’s bought more of them back!
Food in the restaurant was good and so was the service.Rember this is a huge resort with acres of land and the units are spread across extensively,If you want to order food from the room it will take its own time to reach as the other members have reviewed.We were informed that there is no room service at the time of check In but the Restaurant was kind enough to serve as twice in room for our mother who find it troubling to reach restaurant through the rain.The manager took us to the butterfly garden and it was nice to get introduced to the new world of wing swing. Do not forget to have a look on the vegetable garden,it is organic with large variety of vegetables grown.

All in all , a perfect place if you are looking for a “shut the world out “ kind of experience.

Room Tip: if you find it difficult to walk ask for a room close to restaurant
